"Twilight".... the unclear hour of day.
Gregory Crewdson, an artists who's work I find inspirational. There seem to be mixed messages at first glance. A sense of sexuality lingering in the air. The photo is so tightly constructed that it looks as if it could be a films still. This photo seems to be directly linked to the fantasy industry of Hollywood's profit making illusions. Crewdson seems to be embracing and manipulating the image by using high end advertising industrial lighting. He pretty much exploits every technical possibility to achieve his effects. Along with this is women laid out purely for the pleasure of the viewer. This image becomes fascinating because its artfulness seduces.
